When Mitt is a boy he's a free soul. He knows no fear, and runs hither and thither as he pleases. When Mitt becomes a man he finds himself the least free soul in all of Dalemark. He goes nowhere without a guard for fear of bombs and snipers' rifles and – worse – petitioners about the price of coal and the length of the working week and the new tax on spirits and—

When Mitt is dead he finds he's a free soul again. He knows no fear for he's outlasted all that he loves. All he can do is wait.

I don't see immortality lived among mortals as a gift – Indeed, no. Once personal connections are severed, what is there left? godhood, playing with toys, slowly going mad, and possibly bad and dangerous to know as well? The end of the world, provided it included the end of one's own consciousness, might well come as a great gift – and one might be tempted to work for it. The alternative is to build new connections with every generation, and how painful is that going to become, over time? (Boy, I hate dark bunnies.)
